Former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu

BEVERLY HILLS, May 04, (THEWILL) – An investigator with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Tosin Owobo, has alleged that a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (retd), diverted over N677 million from the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) between March 2014 and April 2015.

Owobo was testifying on Thursday in Amosu’s trial before Justice Mohammed Idris of the Federal High Court in Lagos.

Led in evidence by Rotimi Oyedepo, prosecution counsel, Owobo said the diverted fund was moved in several tranches into Hebron Housing and Properties Company’s Limited’s account in Ecobank.

He categorically stated that on April 30, 2014, over N55million was paid into Hebron’s account from NAF, another N93million was also paid into the account from NAF’s account and on July 4, 2014, N104million was transferred to Hebron’s account.

He added that N18.4million was also transferred to the account from the NAF Special Emergency Operations Account.

Owobo listed other sums transferred to include N14million on September 9, 2014 from NAF account; N14.7million on October 9, 2014; N55.8million from Ministry of Defence’s account on December 15, 2014; N36million on February 5, 2015 from NAF Special Emergency Operations Account and N26million on March 24, 2015, among others.

THEWILL recalls that EFCC arraigned Amosu on June 29, 2016 alongside a former NAF Chief of Accounts and Budgeting, Air Vice Marshal Jacob Adigun and a former Director of Finance and Budget, Air Commodore Olugbenga Gbadebo.

They are accused of converting N21billion from the Nigeria Air Force around March 5, 2014 in Lagos through some companies also arraigned with them.

The companies are Delfina Oil and Gas Limited, Mcallan Oil And Gas Limited, Hebron Housing and Properties Company Limited, Trapezites BDC, Fonds and Pricey Limited, Deegee Oil and Gas Limited Timsegg Investment Limited and Solomon Health Care Limited.
